There was a company a year or so ago that announced wireless power. But my understanding was that it was for really short distances (like 3 ft or so) and would be used for charging cells phones and things like that. Perhaps they have increased the range and thats what they hope to use. I imagine the track would need to have some central power source in the middle for cars to be powered from. Interesting if they make it work.

My electric toothbrush uses "wireless" inductive charging. It takes like two days to charge.

That picture looks like a bad photoshop job. And SpeedPassion doesn't make anything but stickers. Maybe this is v1.2 of their sticker?

I mentioned this technology last year. Speedpassion (or whoever is really making the product) must have read my post and agreed with me.


I think that's the only logical theory.

How can it be saving the planet when that wireless power still needs a power source, and efficiency wise, will loose more power over air versus a cord? Even if directed.

If it's a wireless powered device, why does it have "Battery +" and a "Battery -" connectors?
